Wordplay Wednesday™ February 15, 2017 – Sundog

Short ‘n’ Sweet and Quite Bright!  

Fun in the sun is still months away
   but that’s what reveries are for
Close your eyes and plan today
   with words of sunny seashores … (L.Rochelle)

SUNDOG (-dôgʹ) n. – a bright, sunlike optical illusion caused by sunlight passing through ice crystals in the upper atmosphere; parhelion. [WW #99.]

Or … in laymen’s terms: “a bright spot to the left and/or right of the Sun.” (Thank you Wiki!) And you thought they were just lucky snaps of your camera.
"Sun Dog Painting" Stockholm 1535
Word Challenge: SUNDOG. Dream a lovely dream or grab your camera and snap a sundog, one of nature’s incredible phenomena. Can you fit sundog into your week of sunny writings?
